Game Thread # 12 -- vs. Miami

Great job by aaronstampler on ripping my a new one for my Kevin Martin / Manu Ginobili comments. I do plan to respond in more detail in the future, but for now I want to say that Manu Ginobili is my favorite player of all time, in any sport. I want him to retire as a Spur, and I want his jersey retired and I want to be there when they raise it to the rafters. My man love for The Sickness is strong and has not wained.

(Are we all sufficiently creeped out?)

The Spurs are back home, facing the struggling Miami Heat, owners of (by far) the worst point differential in the league (-9.8). That value is obviously made worse by their opening night throttling by 44 points at the hands of CHI. But even if you throw that game out they still have the second worst point differential in the league (-6.0). This year they've been bad with Shaq and bad without him. Just bad. Let's whoop their ass, shall we?

If any PtR readers are going to the game tonight please do me a favor. Point and laugh at Antoine Walker as much as possible. We hates him.
